Wolfgang and his mother, Margaretha Barbara and her husband George S. Voit, along with several others immigrated to North America in 1851. They traveled to Bremen, Germany where they boarded a ship bound for New Orleans, Louisiana, landing in November of 1851. They made their way up the Mississippi to the Ohio River and disembarked at Troy, Perry Co., Indiana. They took up farming in Spencer County. Wolfgang had befriended the Johann Hubschman family. Johann and Margaret E. Polster had given Wolfgang their permission to marry their eldest daughter, Anna, before their deaths in 1855 and 1856. With that permission, Wolfgang had promised to take care of the Hubschman children. Wolfgang then took into his home the five younger children. Anna was very ill from consumption and died at the age of 19, the day after her and Wolf’s only son’s first birthday. On September 30, 1862 Wolfgang married Margatha Huebschman (his first wife’s younger sister). She was also ill of consumption and died, but not before giving Wolfgang two daughters.

In 1870 Wolfgang married Anna Keller. Anna came to America with her father and mother, George Keller and Barbara Kuffner, arriving in New Orleans. Anna and Wolfgang were blessed with eleven children. Wolfgang attended school until he was 14 years old, and was considered to be highly educated. He was part of the core group of St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church in Evanston, Spencer County, Indiana. All of his children were baptized there. He was an Elder in the church and when the pastor was gone, he would read the sermons.

On September 1, 1856 Wolfgang became a citizen of the United States at Rockport, Spencer County, Indiana. Johann Mulzer, Wolfgang’s first son was born in Spencer County, Indiana. He married Louisa Wilhelmina Maier in 1884. Five children were born to this union. After Louisa’s death, Johann married Anna Mary Lottes Dersch at Trinity United Church of Christ near Fulda, Indiana. To this union, two children were born. Johann and his wives were very hard-working farmers in Spencer County.
